These numbers are up-to-the-minute, after this afternoon's first-inning failure with 2 outs and RISP:
RISP: 82 at-bats, .256 BA, 1 HR.
RISP two outs: 31 at-bats, .194 BA, 0 HR.
The king of the meaningless solo HR ... and, therefore, the prototype for the 2014 Yankees.
Just bench him and put Prado and first base/cleanup hitter for a couple of weeks. Prado will hit fewer solo HRs, probably, but he'd also probably be a superior overall player.
